    I only seem to be able to save to my c: drive when i save emails and attachments. This happens even if i put the correct path in. The browse functions only shows the c: drive as well. We run Netware 4.11 and GW5.5.

    thanks

    Dear Andre,

    I assume you are referring the “Save Message and Attachments” applet. This is an example applet that is not fully featured, and makes several assumptions. One of these assumptions is that the destination folder will be on the current drive (normally C: drive).

    You cannot enter a full path into the filename edit box in the applet – this edit box only accepts the name of the file to use when saving the message. It will ignore the path if you enter one.

    You can easily modify the applet to let you select a directory on another drive. Around line 100 you will see a line that looks like this:

    Set iFolderDlg = Utilities.NewSelectDirectoryDialog

    Insert a new line after the above line as shown below (this assumes you wish to select a directory somewhere on D: drive):

    iFolderDlg.Root = "D:"

    When you execute the applet and press the Folder button, you will now be able to select a directory on D: drive.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the tip. I can now save to the n: drive. Does the fully featured applet let you save to multiple directories eg. to either our g: or q: drives?

    thanks

    Andre,

    Thanks for the update. There is currently no ‘fully-featured’ version of this applet available. The applets on the CoolSolutions web site are examples of the kind of functionality possible with Formativ.

    We are constantly updating and adding applets to our ‘Business Solutions Pack’ collection of applets, which represent complete, supported solutions. The ‘save message and attachments’ applet is not currently part of this collection. We may well update this applet to a sufficient level where it would be included. I’m confident such an upgrade would include the functionality you require.

    In the meantime, depending on the resources you have available, you might be able to update the applet yourself to add the required functionality. Alternatively, we offer consulting services. Please email sales@advansyscorp.com if you are interested in this option.

    I hope this helps.

    Advansys Support.
